All My Life (First Things #1) by Rucy Ban

A Short Romp of a Review!

** 2 stars

Seventeen-year-old Kari meets Neil Mars. “Neil as in Armstrong and Mars…as in Bruno.” A boy who beats every vampire, werewolf, highlander fantasy Kari has ever had. But she knows she can’t get close to him. That would mean telling him everything. And Kari can’t bear the idea of changing the way Neil looks at her. His reverence is something too precious to lose. Even at the cost of losing him. 


This book was unrealistic with its quick romance, serious subjects (that weren't very well researched) and it felt as if they were thrown in just to add drama. Also, the ending was overly dramatic and crazily out of place compared to the rest of the book (and that's saying something).

I wasn't very impressed; I've finished and read it, and more than likely never going to read it again.

It had good moments; the hero (Neil) was sweet and hot at the same time. Kari’s friend (in the tattoo parlour) was amusing with her innuendos and open sexuality. But something seemed to be lacking. I would have preferred to learn more about Kari's tattoo artist side and what she was studying in college other than it always being set at lunchtime there. The story had too many loose ends for me. (I don't like open-ended narratives, but you may)

This book just made me want to catch some Zzzz's and usually I'm up all hours of the night reading.
